Licensed in Alberta Canada?

Licensed in Alberta Canada?

Licensed in Alberta Canada?


I have some work that is required to be stamped by an engineer licensed by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA). As a non-resident, I need to apply as a licensee.

The APEGA website (www.apega.ca) application portion appears to be down (even the Contact Us page). For my Canadian (Albertan?) colleagues:
-Am I going in the correct direction?
Is the website down frequently?
Can you point me to a better source for professional licensure in Alberta?

Thank you

That's the right website, couldn't tell you how often it's down. Maybe try calling, they should be in the phone book or yellow pages online. FYI, you need four years of experience and one year of Canadian experience for a P.Eng license (doesn't matter if you reside in Alberta or not, plenty of licensees do not live there).

RE: Licensed in Alberta Canada?

You're having issues because the site now uses https. Please try https://www.apega.ca/

If you're practicing as a company, you will also need to license your company with a Permit To Practice. I hope that you're not on a short timeline, because things get backed up over the summer.

Jeff - contact me. We might be able to assist - we work in very similar fields.

White Paper – Your Construction ERP RFP Checklist
Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
